Welcome to Donna Marchetti Design
here for news and information on upcoming shows.

I dye, paint and sew natural fabrics - cotton, silk and rayon - to create unique clothing and accessories. I use a variety of processes, including hand-painting, resist dyeing and traditional Japanese shibori. Each piece is an original work of wearable art. 

Featuring one-of-a-kind, hand-painted and hand-dyed scarves, jackets and wraps. Each original design is entirely handmade. It is impossible to duplicate the exact pattern and colors, resulting in a piece of wearable art that can be enjoyed for many years. Every piece bears my trademark “dm” initials, as would any work of art.

I start with white fabric. Depending on the material and the desired outcome, I either apply dyes with brushes then steam-set the colors, or I use immersion baths of fiber-reactive dyes that bond with the fabric and become permanent. I use only the finest, non-toxic products.
